[desserts of fruit
(HOW HOUSEWIFE CAN USE LEFT
Two Recipes That Afford an Agra*
1 able Change After the Family
Has Become Heartily Sick
Often at this time of tbe year the
^housewife has etill a few Jars of pre
served fruit on hand. She and her
family are heartily tick of “sauce"
Try this plan of making two delicious
desserts from one quart Jar of peaches.
Preserved strawberries, cherries. e»e.,
are equally good to use. Separate the
peaches from the juice.
Recipe No. 1—Rub tbe peaches to a
pulp through a sieve. Add a half cup
ful of sugar If tbe fruit is not very
sweet Whip a pint of cream stiff.
Mix well with the peach pulp and
turn into two one-pound empty bak
lr*S powder cans. Cover with oiled
aper (the paper from cracker boxes
Is food to use) and presa cover on
tightly. Bury the cans In finely
chopped Ice and rock salt (equal por
lions) for two hours. ThU serves
seven or eight people.
Don t think because you are not
need to making the Ice cream that
you cannot make thia dessert. It Is
very simple. For a froien whipped
cream dessert a freexer Is not neces
sary. Any two quart kettle will hold
the Ice and salt. Personally I always
use one of the kettles from my tire
less cooker. I place several folds of
newspaper directly Inside the kettle
to till up st-acs so that I won’t need
to use much Ice and salt. When
packed I put tbe kettle away In tbe
fireless cooker ■ant 11 time to servs.
Recipe No. 2—You will have about
two cupfuls of fruit sirup from your
Jar of peaches. Soak one and a hair
pounds powdered gelatin In a half
cupful of cold sirup for five minutes
Bring tbe rest of the strap to a botu
sweeten If uecessary and pour ovei
the gelatin, stirring It until dissolved
6et in cool place to harden.
The peach gelatin may be served
with whipped cream. Or before the
gelatin hardens, you may whip Into
It the stiffly beaten white of an egg
and make a thin custard from the
yolk to serve as a sauce around the
Never turn griddle cakes a second
tffjie, as It makes them heavy. Serve
'Jbem the same side up as when taken
from the griddle.

!lf the left ovec .breakfast cereal Is
carefully molded \iWo a bowl or square
pan that is first wet with cold water
It may be sliced and fried as an ac
ceptable luncheon dish.
To teat drinking water put one tea
spoonful of granulated sugar In a
pint of the water you want to teat
Cork tightly, place on the kitchen
mantel shelf. If pure the water will
remain clear. If not It will cloud
densely and ought to be analyzed.
When a cake of soap is worn near
1v thin enough to break, stick It to
the new cake by putting both in quite
warm water, then press firmly togeth
er. When cold it will be one solid
eake. This docs away with small
pieces of soap and there Is no waste.
A bit of reliable coloring placed In
the water in which a tub frock In
washed will restore Its color and may
be used with safety If It Is properly
rinsed and dried. This applies only
to snch gowns as are not trimmed with
White or other colored trimmings.

pared rind of two.lentous and one-ball

dish and serve or mold first and tLeo
unmold and serve.
Core out. but do not peel, aoms
good, ripe pears, slice them, crush
them well tn a bowl and wring the
pulp through very strong tnuslln. For
every pound of this pulp add one-half
pound of sugar, previously boiled to
a thick syrup. Cook it very slowly
on the stove until reduced to about
twothlrds Its original quantity It

"Hello. Bob! I'm glad I met you."
■aid Downer. "1 meant to call you
up as soon ss I got to tbs office to
day. We have two crates of cherrlM
tbst were shipped to ua rrom my
home place, and as we've put up
enough to last ua two yMra—for. of
courae, wa shwa't have any cherries
next year—I thought you and your
i wife might like a crate. If you would,
you're more than welcome to It"
Kimball gave his friend a weary,
frightened look "Prank." he Mid,
"If you value my friendship don't t
speak of cherries to me. and if you
value your life don't send any char
ries up to my bouse."
"You seem to be peevish on the
subject of cherries." Mid bis friend
"What* the answer?"
*T feel as if 1 bad been burled In
cherries for a week, and I am sure
another shipment would put me past
resurrection," said Kimball.
' "Then you don't care for cherries," ;
said Downer in an Injured tone.
"On the contrary. I do, decidedly;
or at least 1 did; but 1 have bad too
much of a good thing.
“In the early part of the week." he
related, "my wife began to buy cber I
ries from every quarter tbst they j
were offered for tale, because they
were so cbeap and she knew we i
would have no cherries next year, be- |
cause of tbe enormous crop this year. I
At least, every one wbo had cherries
to sell told her that a huge crop one j
year meant a frmine for years to
fcome; and I think she felt the ssme
•responsibility that Joseph did whee |
he started in to store up corn enough
to last all Kgypt for seven years.
"At any rate, she Impressed the
whole family Into service stoning
cherries. The work had to be done
by hand, she said, because tbe seeder j
•rushed the fruit so badly Well. I
got Into the habit of rising an hour
earlier each morning to help with tbe
cherries; and 1 would faithfully seed
cherries each night nil a late bed
time Through the day my wife
would ran and preserve and pickle to
her heart's content.
"1 did a good deal of growling oe
eause the fruit was so small, and I
said 1 wouldn't mind the work if tbe
cherries were like those that grew on
my Unde John's place. Those cber
ries, I told my wife, were regular
monsters, as large as plums.
"Then what should come yesterday
morning but two bushel baskets full
of cherries from Uncle John's place
along with a note which said he
hoped we would not let any of them
go to waste, for we probably should
not have any cherries to speak of foi
years to come. Somehow thote cber
ries didn't look nearly so large to m»
ns they used to and I groaned In
wardly, but I promised to hurry horn*
In the evening and help with them
“When I reached home 1 found
Genevieve HI with cramps from eat
Ing too many cherries. Christine had
lo look after her, and my wife and
I got rather a late start on those twe
bushels of cherries. We soon settled
Into absolute silence and stoned cber
ries like automatons
"Once, when my wife's back was
turned, I slipped several handfuls ol
unstoned cherries Into the bowl, * ut
she soon discovered my trick and then
every cherry in that bowl had to be
squeezed and pinched to see 1* It had
a seed in it, for my wife said that
seme one might break a tooth or get
choked or have appendicitis through
my recklessness. My wife has a won
derful devotion to principle and alst
the courage of her convictions.
"After hours of that stupid work
f heard a robin begin to sing. Gianc
Ing out of the window, I saw day
light streaking the cut. I bad itched
cherries all night!
"An awful rebellion rose In my
heart when I remembered that tha;
robin was so happy because he could
eat cherries without stoning them. I
staggered to my feet and started foi
the couch in the library, whereupon
my wife said in a surprised tone
'Why. Robert, you are not going te
quit, are you?*
“My wife has the aoul of a martyr
and absolutely no conception of or
dloary human weakness.

Miss Belinda handed him the basket of

Miss Belinda did not trouble to ex
plain that she was letting tbe graft

whose own meadows did not yield
enough hay for tbe horses’ needs
She got her trowel and. kneeling
